Clearly Corrective Brightening & Exfoliating Daily Cleanser is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 124.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wish they hadn't changed this Like others, I was unpleasantly surprised to find that this is NOT the same product as the Clearly Corrective Brightening Exfoliator they used to carry (although the packaging is so close, which is why i didn't notice this was a "daily cleanser" and not an "exfoliator"). The old product was amazing, after one use you could feel the dead skin slough off and the results were noticeable. I loved that it was a chemical exfoliant so that you didn't have to scrub hard or at all to still get the benefits. This is just a gel cleanser with exfoliating beads in it. Super bummed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked for me So, I can’t compare this to the cleanser that others have referenced that was discontinued from this line. I also received this as a sample. Personally, it’s done good things for my skin. I’ve noticed a brighter complexion and some reduction in dark spots (I was also using a sample of their dark spot serum, so that could be helping as well). I’ve also used it daily and I find that it exfoliates without irritating my skin, and I’m usually very sensitive to that. The sample is enough for me to pull the trigger on a full size, but I think one thing is clear: if you can try before you buy, do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product blows away my previous cleanser! I feel so bad for the folks who had great experiences with the prior product. I’m fairly new to the Kiehl’s product line, but I have to say that I absolutely love this product! My skin is very sensitive, so I’ve shelled out a lot of cash over the years trying various products, and the product I used (most recently) before this one cost more than twice as much and didn’t work half as well. Not only does this product clean my skin without creating a red, splotchy face, but it really does brighten my skin...to the point where I bumped into some old friends who told me that I look much younger! Needless to say, I’m a huge fan of this cleanser! To those of you who may not be as enamored, hang in there and keep trying some other Kiehl’s options!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wish they did not update it I have been using this product for number of years, any friends or family who used it used to love it and you would notice the difference after one use, however they recently changed the product which I must admit I am not such a big fan of. It no longer has that wow factor as it did before, so after this tube finishes I will have to look for another alternative :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from THIS...JUST NO I just can’t...is it not beyond obvious that this was a terrible idea by now, just look at the reviews. I also USED to be a fan of Kiehls, and spent very good money on the CC Foam cleanser as well(as majority of commenters). Discontinuing without warning is just disrespectful to loyal customers as myself for the past 7-8yrs. I have invested in you and my skin and am disappointed that now I must find something new. Please continue to s/w the senior management in the company about the disappointment many many customers feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brightening effects I started using this product in Feb and am not one to spend too much money on expensive brands, but this 2 in 1 cleaner and exfoliator is brilliant, a little goes a longggg way.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Threw it away The Clearly Corrective Brightening collection used to have a product called *Skin Brightening Exfoliator.* When I purchased from a retail location, I thought maybe they just changed the name to *Brightening & Exfoliating Daily Cleanser.* Sadly, no. The formula has also changed, and the texture of the product makes it impossible to squeeze out of the bottle without making a mess (think gooey, melted cheese). And forget rubbing your fingertips together to apply to your face! When I thew it away, I squeezed it out of the bottle so I could at least recycle the bottle... only to have the mess sit like a wad on top of my drain and clog it. Too bad because the previous formula was great... in the month or so since I was forced to switch to a different brand, my skin clarity has obviously suffered and the red splotchiness on my face is back.

Does this product contain micro-plastics?

I am concerned about plastic pollution and am trying to avoid using products that contain plastic microbeads. I know this product contains natural exfoliants, but can someone confirm whether or not it contains plastic microbeads?
Asked by: KathrynC
Yes - ACRYLATES COPOLYMER - is a micro-bead plastic used for abrasion.

Are you going to go back to the old formula?

I was about to order more face wash but I see you changed it and the reviews are horrible. I have sensitive skin and even within the Kiehls line have issues. I hope you will be changing back.
Asked by: cgreen

Is this safe to use to wash around eye area?

Asked by: EliDominguez

Does this cleanser foam up, in addition to exfoliating-- like the Clearly Corrective Purifying Facial Cleanser?

Asked by: Anonymous
The clearly corrective brightening & exfoliating daily cleaner does have a light foam. I highly recommend it.
